Pre Setup Information Window

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

been searching the board for the last 2 hours to find information about my problem

i have failed to find anything

so i hope one of you is willing to help me

i integrated the driverpacks into my ucd, edited all that was needed

followed everything as in the information files

i had no errors whatsoever so i made my iso and start testing it in vmware

then suddenly i got the popup message (as in attached picture)

Fatal Error: Cannot open C:\\setup.exe

i have no clue what this error is

i'm installing everything from dvd so why is it looking in c anyway ???

only thing i can think of myself (and i'm not that smart) that it has something to do with this section from presetup.cmd ???

REM +=======================================================+

REM | Finally start the installation with the originally    |

REM | given parameters                                      |

REM |-------------------------------------------------------|

start /WAIT setup.exe %*

REM +=======================================================+

hopefully some of you can make some sense out of this as i am completely lost

please help if you can

nope no nlite and no i did not remove anything

i did everything as told in the readme files

i used method 2

only thing i edited was the path to the driver folder eg from $OEM$/$1 to Drivers

but i dont think that hasnt got anything to do with the presetup.cmd not finding the setup (wich strangely says C: while it should install from the dvd)

do you need me to post anything here like my presetup.cmd or something ?

i really need this fixed please... (or else my ucd is f*cked up i guess?)

Huh? Did you repack my DriverPacks? Because they HAVE to be in the OEM folder when using this method! And if you don't, then you have to edit the presetup.cmd, which you haven't...

I see you're using some sort of hybrid method here... My DriverPacks + drivers in $OEM$\Drivers. Move your drivers to $OEM$\DP and everything will work if you use my default settings ;)

no i did not repack your drivers

my master driver folder is in the root of the dvd so not even in $OEM$ folder

e.g X:\Drivers\DP\herealldriverfoldersfromyourpacks(andmine)

must your dp folder be in $OEM$ ??? i thought you could put them in your root driver folder (X:\Drivers\)

you see i'm installing everything from the dvd i dont use the copy to hdd first ($OEM$\$1\)

did i f*ck up here ? and if so can i resque anything or is it game over ?

EDIT :

could this work : start /WAIT %CDROM%\setup.exe %* in stead of start /WAIT setup.exe %*

just an idea....

You don't need setup line at all.

Just REM or delete setup line.

thanks for the replies guys i'm glad you are willing to help a newcomer i really am

i changed my prestup.cmd like you guys suggested and tried again

well the "cannot find setup" error is gone now but now i have a new one

and this particular error is just plain weird as that must be correct in the presetup.cmd

my lines (unmodified)

REM +=======================================================+

if exist setup.exe ren setup.exe setupold.exe
if exist setupORG.exe ren setupORG.exe setup.exe
REM +=======================================================+

and look at the error below in the picture

can anyone help me on this please ?

It's impossible that you got this error if you didn't make any changes.

Please post EVERY change you made!

P.S.: it would definetely be easier if you adapted your things to the method, instead of how you are doing it now...

thanks again for your help

only thing i changed was the path to my base folder dir m8

i'm very close to giving up right now...

is it possible to do method1 or 2 again from the start ? (overwriting this install)

if you answer with yes i will just begin from the start but no more changes

i just want (wanted) my drivers to install from the dvd like my software and not copy them to hdd first (e.g the $OEM$\$1 folders)

if i can start over again i will do it EXACTLY as in the topic posted a few posts above...but like i said is that still possible ?

Well... IF everything was implemented the way it is automatically done by my DriverPacks BASE, it will be automatically removed.

*BUT* because you've changed some things, it will only remove the things that are default. So the things you've added/changed will have to be removed manually...
